City NGO takes up Tibetan’s cause
Express India[Thursday, July 24, 2008 17:44]

Kolkata, July 23: Kolkata will now be a part of the International Tibet Support Network (ITSN). The city was not included in the group till date because the communist-ruled state had not allegedly allowed the network to enter the city. ITSN operates across the globe for the freedom of Tibet.

Ganasamannway, a local NGO, has launched a campaign to raise the demand of Tibet’s freedom in Kolkata. It organised a conference on the issue on Wednesday. President of Ganasamannwaya, Pratap Ghosh said: “One of the most tragic and unresolved issues facing the world today is the political status of Tibet and the treatment of the Tibetan people. Tibet was an independent, sovereign nation with its history spanning across thousands of years. But now the Chinese rule the Tibet. We have made a support group here and will fight for the cause.”

A member of the Tibetan Students’ Association, Tensing said,”We are living in utter hell. The Chinese Government has snatched every right from us. If anybody raises his voice against them, he is brutally slaughtered. We want every country to support our cause.”

To protest against the torture of the Chinese government in Tibet, ITSN has organised a symbolic movement called Tibetan Freedom Torch. The torch has been travelling all over the globe. It began its journey from Olympia, Greece and after passing through more than 50 cities across US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and New Zealand, it reached India on July 9. On July 24, the torch will reach Kolkata and will be received by Ganasamannay.
